The brainchild of high school friends Luke Burbank and Jen Andrews, Too Beautiful 
to Live is a simple show about simple things— about personal triumphs and 
personal foibles; about tragedy and thrills. With a Seinfeld-esc\ue dialogue, Luke 
and Jen reflect on life and everything that is wholly unimportant. Their debut year, 
2008, charts Too Beautiful to Live's evolution into something great.

2011; 201 2; 201 3 


Luke Burbank 

Burbank began his career in radio by pinch hitting across a variety of shows and 
genres, working either as a producer or as on-air talent. His work touched a 
number of shows, including The Conversation, Rewind, and Day to Day. He later 
became a reporter for NPR before starring as a regular panelist on the comedy 
show Wait Wait... Don't Tell Me! After a stint on The Bryant Park Project Burbank 
returned to Seattle to begin work on Too Beautiful to Live. 

Jen Andrews 

Jen Andrews served as producer for a variety of shows at KIRO before becoming 
executive producer of Too Beautiful to Live. The show marked the reunion of 
Burbank and Andrews, who had known each other since childhood. Andrews left 
the show for a time after its cancellation from radio and subsequent transition to 
the podcast format, but soon after rejoined Burbank as he broadcast from his 
home, "Burbank Studios." 

Sean DeTore 

Sean DeTore worked at KIRO-FM as a radio engineer. With a penchant for aged 
audio media like cassette tapes and vinyl records, DeTore was beloved by listeners 
for his eccentricities and liveliness. After KIRO cancelled Too Beautiful to Live, 
DeTore continued to appear, albeit intermittently, on TBTL's podcast incarnation.
